My first win. And now I get to make it everyone's problem.

'Who we are' is a question that holds infinite promise and possibility while keeping us up at night with the dread of not knowing the answer. The question of identity is one that plagues all of us at one time or another, especially those of us who might have to hide an identity to protect ourselves, or adopt multiple identities to make it through the day. And during Halloween, we even put on disguises and costumes to create and obfuscate our identities even further.

So for this week's prompt, I want you to give us a story about leading a double life. We'll even make it interesting: If you add in a Flash rule, you get an extra 500 words and an occupation that commonly requires a double life. If you're brave enough to :toxx:, we'll throw on an extra 500 words for a consequence of your duality or re-roll your flash rule.

Standard rules apply: No fanfiction, erotica or web links. If you do poetry it must be as part of the story and not the story itself.
